Its been a while since I've last posted anything on my blog but to get back into the habit I'll be posting some of my video review and tutorials as well some of my snapshots and opinions on cameras and anything photography related.
Firstly, its svelete design is nothing short of excellent with its simplistic body and button layout, anyone can become accustomed to this camera. It has a nice selection of camera modes from Program, Aperture, Shutter speed and Manual settings all the way to its Intelligent auto modes and Sweep Panorama.

One new feature not seen in many Sony cameras is its ability to take photos whilst recording a video. Its a really helpful feature that I'm sure many people would appreciate. Its simple to do and just by pressing the shutter button, you'll be able to capture a moment in the video and turn it into a still without any interruption to the video itself.
Video quality is good as well with the ability to capture full HD videos in AVCHD format in 50fps or 60fps depending on your region or mp4 for use on the web. Active SteadyShot, a more efficient form of the standard SteadyShot is built into this camera to help stabilize whilst recording.
After using this camera for a while I can definitely agree that this is the best pocket camera ever made. Although you are paying quite an expensive price, it still is a good purchase because you're buying a camera that approaches DSLR quality but in a compact and pocketable body and beats out the competition in the compact camera class. If you value excellent image quality in a pocketable form this camera is the perfect choice for you.
